Dear Andrew,

If you read Poe's "The Philosophy of Composition", you will find that the mood he intended to create in his poem "The Raven" is a melancholic one, seeing that the speaker is mourning the death of his beloved Lenore. The essay offers a very detailed rationale behind the poem, and I think you will find it particularly helpful.

Feel free to e-mail me with any other queries:

Yours sincerely,
